Honor a Loved One
You can remember or honor a patient, loved one, friend, caregiver, colleague or someone else you love by making a gift to Seattle Children’s in their name. We can acknowledge your gift by sending a card of appreciation, and your donation will help provide excellent medical care for kids and accelerate cures for pediatric disease. Please note that the amount of the gift will not be disclosed to the individual or family being honored.
When gifts in memory of an individual total $500, that person’s name is added to the Memorial Wall at the hospital, and remains on the wall for 20 years – a long-lasting reminder of a special person’s legacy. Seattle Children’s Memorial Wall is an enduring way to recognize someone who has passed away.
You can donate directly to Seattle Children’s online, by mail or over the phone in someone’s name, and designate your donation for a specific area of the hospital or research institute. You can also ask us to send a card (shown at left) to notify the person honored or their family.
